Abstract:
Burlington, then the largest city in Alamance County, experienced a surge of industrial growth following World War II. All sectors of the city flourished during this period including civic improvements and health programs. Expansion of manufacturing was pivotal to the town's success, especially its most noteworthy manufactured good, hosiery.
